The mean July water temperatures of the Yukon River at the Pilot station and the Mackenzie River at the Arctic Red River station were about 17[degrees]C and 16[degrees]C, respectively (Yang et al, 2014).
The water temperatures at the Pilot and Arctic Red River stations are significantly warmer than those at the upstream stations.
At the time, my good friend Tavis (Tav) Molnar was a guide for Arctic Red River Outfitters in the Northwest Territories of Canada.
On a windy September evening, Tav landed Kevin and me by way of Super Cub airplane in an area east of the Arctic Red River. Our plan was to hunt along the front range of the Mackenzies and move our camp as we traveled.
Western Arctic was also a partnership with Metis and Dene bands in Inuvik, Aklavik, Fort McPherson and Arctic Red River
The Mackenzie River farther south had already begun its spring ice breakup by 12 May 2005 between Arctic Red River
(67[degrees] 25' 46" N, 133[degrees] 42' 28" W) and Fort Good Hope (66[degrees] 15' 45" N, 128[degrees] 28' 56" W), approximately 500 km south of our study area (T.R.
An additional eight fish, the first verified from the Mackenzie River, were captured in and near the Arctic Red River
at Tsiigehtchic in 1993 (R.
Discharge data for the Mackenzie gauged at the village of Arctic Red River
(with a drainage area of 1.68 million k[m.sup.2]), before the river branches into many distributaries, will be used as the total flow for the Mackenzie system.
Elevations range from sea level to 10-15 m in the area of Tsiigehtchic (formerly Arctic Red River
) and Fort McPherson.
Attention has been concentrated on three stations: the Mackenzie River, immediately upstream of Arctic Red River
; the Arctic Red River
at its mouth (though the discharge gauge is upstream near Martin House); and the Peel River upstream of Fort McPherson (Fig.
Three freshwater sampling locations were chosen (Arctic Red River
, Aklavik, and Inuvik) to provide a range of sediment and flow conditions while affording good accessibility (Fig.
In 1993, coincidentally, several specimens of sockeye salmon were also caught in subsistence fisheries in the lower Mackenzie and Arctic Red Rivers
